Pete Smith


RCVS and EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology, Head of Neurology

Pete qualified from Edinburgh University and after spending three years in small animal practice in Manchester, found himself drawn back to academia. He completed a PhD and a period of post-doctoral research at Cambridge University, investigating cell transplantation as a treatment for problems such as spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. Following this he returned to clinical veterinary work, completing a residency in neurology and neurosurgery at Cambridge University. After a stint in a private veterinary referral hospital in London, he joined the University of Liverpool, where he was Head of Veterinary Neurology for 4 years before joining Davies Veterinary Specialists. He is a European and RCVS specialist in Veterinary Neurology and his clinical and research interests include surgical treatment of spinal cord problems, inflammatory diseases of the nervous system and seizures. Pete consults from London Veterinary Specialists in Hampstead on a Thursday.

“Neurological disease can be distressing for owners and animals alike. Being able to explain why animals develop neurological problems requires careful examination and a variety of advanced diagnostic equipment. The broad range of clinical services available at Davies enables me reach a diagnosis promptly and to instigate the best treatment as quickly as possible.”
